William Peck to General Heath



North-Castle, 7th December, 1776.

DEAR GENERAL: By express of General Spencer, just received your favour of the 6th instant. By his order would I inform you, that General Wooster, upon the first discovery of the movement of the fleet, sent forward an express to Connecticut, with a desire it might be forwarded to Newport, which occasioned my not sending. We are upon our march towards Crum Pond; shall this night be at North-Castle Church. Should you have any news from the Jerseys, pray forward it to the General as fast as possible. The stores are to be deposited at Crum Pond, where General Wadsworth' s brigade will guard them until further orders.

No particular news at this post but what your Honour has been made acquainted.

In behalf of General Spencer, I am your Honour' s most obedient humble servant,

WILLIAM PECK, Aid-de-Camp.

Major-General Heath.
